Abstract

The Australian debate on the provision of inpatient care has progressed in recent years. Previously, policy makers considered Australia to have too many psychiatric beds, leading to a 2014 recommendation by the National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) that AUD$1 billion should be redirected from public hospitals
to primary and community mental health services (Allison and Bastiampillai, 2015).
